This site provides the ability to view preliminary police reporting information and is subject to change. CrimeMapping.com utilizes an advanced mapping engine, which provides a high level of functionality as well as flexibility to the communities we serve. Crime data is extracted on a daily basis from each department's records system so that the information being viewed through a Web browser is the most current available. All address information is proximity only and generalized by block in order to help ensure privacy is protected.
